wow we were all there, go figure! ;)

What I'm not sure of is which day I went. I went when the GD opened in the afternoon but I've read many conflicting reports between the 9th & 10th.

I assume the GD opened on the 9th and The Who opened on the 10th

This is my memory and I'm sticking to it. Of course I am now getting SS.

The Who opened on the 9th and I was overwhelmed with how wonderful they were. They were so different when Keith Moon was alive. The Dead were good, but I didn't think great. I had five years under my belt including the retirement shows and a bunch of Hollywood Bowls etc. A tie.

The next day the Dead opened and they were much more aggressive and they killed. God were we thrilled. Then the Who came on and after a few songs, my friends and I looked at each other and said 'it's the same damn show.' And we left.

And I'm sticking to my story. :)
